"Thank you so much for the incredible piano you graciously provided for our concert production of 'Anyone Can Whistle' . . . The show was a great success . . . the lucky person who played your piano, Scott Warrender, was delighted with the intrument and was raving about it. He is a widely respected musical theatre composer, whose works have been performed around the Seattle area and also off-Broadway. I thought you would like to know how pleased he was with your wonderful piano."

-- Margaret Stenson Pehrson
Producing Artistic Director, Showtunes! Theatre, commenting on the Fandrich & Sons Model 213HGS.



"Yours are the best pianos you can play on except maybe a Steinway--I could easily play either one. No one can come close for the price, evenness of tone, and action performance. Your Steinberg grand did everything I wanted it to. It has clarity and transparency in the upper register with no loss of warmth."

-- Reuel Lubag
Pacific NW regional jazz artist, Glen Miller band alumnus.



"The piano I'm playing tonight is a Fandrich & Sons built by Darrell Fandrich. He's been kind enough to lend his piano to this and several other jazz venues recently. As a piano player this is a great thing! We need to encourage Darrell to keep doing this, and if you're in the market for a piano, if you buy this one maybe I'll come over to your house and play it!"

-- Dave Peck
Seattle jazz recording and performing artist, on the occasion of his CD release party at Jazz Alley, Seattle.



"This is just a gorgeous instrument....I'd like to thank the Fandrichs and also thank the piano!."

-- Lynne Ariale

"Our search for a piano consumed several months. We read The Piano Book and seriously researched all our options. During this time we played several Steinways, Bosendorfers, Schimmels, Mason & Hamlins, Kawais, and Yamahas. Although these well-known pianos are beautiful to look at, hard as it is to believe we found them inconsistent at best. The inflated prices were more a reflection of pedigree and finish rather than action and tone. In comparison, the Fandrich and Sons Model 185 played beautifully. The action was fully developed and the sound was warm and full. All tones were consistent, even with the slightest touch. If you are looking for the prestige of a big name piano and have money to burn, buy one of the brands mentioned earlier. But if you are looking for the best value going in a grand piano, buy a Fandrich and Sons model 185. We enjoy it more each day. Thank you Darrell and Heather."
